Pitching in relief in his organization debut, Aaron Harang allowed a two-run homer to Cody Decker but no other damage in four innings.

They will take on Trenton on Wednesday in the first round of the Eastern League postseason. The Fisher Cats scored the game's opening run against Mark Cohoon (9-5) in the third. After Lance Zawadzki singled, Jonathan Jones plated him with a two-out hit. New Hampshire added to its lead in the fourth with another two-out RBI single. Ryan Schimpf delivered the run-producing knock to give the Fisher Cats a 2-0 lead. Cohoon’s day ended after five innings. In the sixth, Armando Rodriguez surrendered two runs. Kevin Nolan hit an RBI single into right field and Schimpf followed with a sacrifice fly. Long Island native Marcus Stroman baffled Binghamton's hitters. He did not allow a baserunner until the fifth, and only allowed two base hits over eight innings. The only time Binghamton got on the scoreboard against the righty came in the sixth. Richard Lucas led off with a double and scored two batters later on Alonzo Harris' sacrifice fly. In a 4-1 game, New Hampshire added insurance against Ryan Fraser in the seventh. Andy Burns delivered an RBI single. Nolan brought home two more on a single. Hamilton Bennett tossed a perfect eighth. Chasen Bradford gave up one unearned run in the ninth.

He advanced to third on Boss Moanaroa’s single. Leonel Escobar then grounded out to first. Brian Harrison stepped on the bag, but could not throw to second in time to nab Moanaroa for a double play, allowing Briscoe to score. Camarena finished six innings with six strikeouts. Greenville starter Sergio Gomez threw six scoreless innings to earn his first South Atlantic League win. The Gnats (34-35/77-61) went 0-for-6 with runners in scoring position. All three Savannah hits were singles. The upcoming playoff series shifts to Savannah for Game 2 on Friday. Game 3, if necessary, in the best-of-three first round will be Saturday. Box

But Tri-City right fielder Ronnie Mitchell gunned down Sanchez at the plate for the final out of the inning. Brooklyn starter Dawrin Frias cruised through three innings, but ran into trouble in the fourth. Consecutive singles from Tyler White and Conrad Gregor put runners on the corners with nobody out. Mitchell produced a game-tying sacrifice fly. That score held until the eighth. Cyclones reliever Cristian Chivilli instantly found himself in trouble. A leadoff single from Ryan Dineen, a wild pitch and a booming double from White broke the 1-all tie. Mitchell’s second sac fly of the game pushed the ValleyCats' advantage to 3-1. The Cyclones close the regular season with two more games at Bruno Stadium against the ValleyCats. Box
